Ashlyn Grey was born and raised in the hot desert of Arizona. She attended Arizona State University and earned a degree in English Literature, along with a Master in Arts in History from Northern Arizona University. She was bitten by the travel bug and somehow ended up teaching the English language overseas, which led her to experience different cultures and traditions. She used to write poetry decades ago, but now, mostly enjoys writing short stories after delving into the archives with a glass of wine in hand. She is recently married and has a very protective (and needy) cat named Merlin. She is very excited to join the Pantheon project with hopes of starting her own novel soon.
